Equation for a damped harmonic oscillator

Hey dear,
can you answer to the following question.

Write the general equation for ‘damped harmonic oscillator.’ Solve it and discuss all the three features of damping i.e. when damping is small, medium, and high.


I couldn't find the features of damping-are the same as the over and critical damping?
